Father's Day 2014

This proud Daddy has double the love this year! Happy Father's Day to you!
Greyson has the tired/over-it face in this pic, but I CAN'T HANDLE the sweetness of the hand holding!

11 Months!

This pretty lady is 11 months old!!  My how time flies!  It is so hard to believe that one year ago today I was a huge pregnant lady waiting to meet this smiley girl.  

It may not look like it, but she is growing everyday!  This month she has mastered the speed crawl.  This girl can move! I will set her down, look away, and BAM, she's in the other room! Haha She is SO much different than her brother in the crawling department.  Grey did this awesome army crawl thing, and Elizabeth takes the traditional approach, but she moves so fast she has rug burn looking places on the tops of her feet and knees. Ha!  She pulls up to her knees, and she does what we call her "yoga move" where she will stand up and balance on her head, but so far she hasn't really tested out or attempted to walk.  Now that she is mobile, she is VERY curious about her surroundings.  So far, she has taste-tested fuzz, scraps of paper, dog food, and lord knows what else before I can sprint to get to her mouth.  Thankfully, she still has just the two teeth, so when I do the mouth sweep she can't do too much damage:) 

She is still a little piggy when it comes to meal time!  We have found out that she must be allergic to eggs.  The last 2 times she has had them she throws them right back up--yuck!  Once with Mom and Dad, and once with GG (sorry GG!). She doesn't have any trouble with things that have eggs in them, but she can't stomach the scrambled variety.  Otherwise, she chows down on everything else!  I know it will be shocking, but she seems to LOVE all forms of carbs...can't imagine where that must come from:) 

This month after we got out of school, we scheduled Elizabeth's eyelid surgery.  If you remember, she was born with a little slit in her left eyelid (you can see it below--aww tiny baby!).  Our ophthalmologist said that we would need to have it corrected in case it continued to widen as she grew older.  He said it could cause her problems later in life.     

Patiently awaiting surgery at the crack of dawn at the surgery center. 
She wasn't very happy for a few hours (understandably), but she was up and at 'em in no time at all!

 Her eye is healing very quickly. This is a picture from just a couple of days afterward.


As soon as we were given the green light, Elizabeth had her very first dip in the pool!  She is a big fan of splashing, and I am a big fan of baby swim attire! Ha!  We have a few other swim outfits to debut before the summer is over.


First time in the grass!  Not too sure about this stuff. 


Okay, maybe it's not too bad. 


Love this little girl!

Grey's Last Day at Miss Terri's

We are so unbelievably grateful to have found Miss Terri when we had Grey 4 years ago.  She has been such a blessing to our family.  We love her!  I know Grey will miss her next year when he begins pre-school, but thankfully Elizabeth has a couple more years to go with her!
